Melenos Lindos Hotel sits in perfect harmony with the local village on a fortified outcrop of Rhodes. In a stunning position beneath the Temple of Athena, this stylish boutique hotel combines authenticity with beautiful Aegean views and excellent dining. Admire the fusion of Byzantine, Medieval, Arabic and Ottoman influences - all with a contemporary slant. The façade is adorned with mosaics and hand-carved motifs. Traditional raised sleeping platforms, pointed arches, rare antiquities, ceramics and Iznik-style tiles are the finishing touches. Relax with a book on your private terrace and enjoy the citrus scents that emanate from the gardens. Later, dine on innovative Greek-inspired cuisine under huge medieval-style tents.
The design of the Double Suites are inspired by the traditional Lindos style, which evolved in the 17th century. Each room has an individual variation of the distinctive raised wooden sleeping platforms built from elaborate hand-carved cedar. The immaculate en-suite bathrooms have a striking Iznik style hand-painted ceramic tile panel. Independently controlled air conditioning, Internet, mini-bar, TV, DVD library access, and luxurious Frette linen complete the inviting ensemble.
The Honeymoon Suites feature vaulted ceilings and incorporate a large comfortable sitting area. Their twin sink bathrooms have a hamam basin as well as shower. On the terrace there is a retractable canvas roof giving shade and privacy with built-in seating with either a garden view or partial sea view. These suites come equipped with independently controlled air conditioning, Internet, mini-bar, TV, DVD library access, and luxurious Frette linen complete the inviting ensemble.
The highly qualified chefs have imagination and enthusiasm and a diverse approach to their menus. While respecting their Greek tradition and the aromatic influences from Asia Minor, they seek a broader balance without limitation; always eager to try a new combination of ingredients and flavours to widen their already impressive repertoire. However, like all reputable chefs these days, they acknowledge that high quality fresh raw ingredients are the essential basis to a good meal. They understand that often only very subtle enhancement is enough to give a dish individuality.
